GTA Property Services Group Inc. Releases Comments on Extreme Snowstorm in Buffalo

GTA Property Services Group Inc. (, the leading cleaning company in Vaughan specializing in water damage restoration and cleanup, is releasing its comments on the recent snowstorm that hit the Buffalo area. GTA Property Services Group Inc. points out that the Toronto area needs to use this storm as a reminder to constantly be prepared for the unexpected.

Last week, Buffalo was hit with more than two metres of snow, the equivalent of what the city would typically see in an entire year. The storm left 10 dead and many more injured and inconvenienced, as a driving ban was placed on parts of South Buffalo. (Source: The Associated Press, “Buffalo snow: ‘Shovel brigade’ cleans up as flood warning looms,” November 24, 2014;

“It’s one of the worst snowfalls that city has seen and it left some devastating effects,” says Chad Vanvari, owner of GTA Property Services Group Inc. “People lost their lives and many more lives were impacted in a horrible way.”

Mr. Vanvari goes on to say that, although the snow has passed, the threat of snow melting and causing floods is very serious, constituting another huge issue the city is handling.

“Basement flooding, roofs collapsing, and overall street flooding are huge concerns. Having all that snow melt can cause some serious problems and residents of the city still need to be on high alert. Judging from all the reports, it seems the city is doing all it can to keep the residents informed.”

To prepare for any similar situation here in the GTA, Mr. Vanvari says his focus this time of year is on emergency flood and restoration services. Once the emergency phase is completed—meaning water has been dried out and wet building materials removed (if necessary) —clients now have the option to complete the restoration process and have their property returned to its original state through the repair and renovation phase.

“It’s a chance to utilize the relationships we’ve developed with people in flooring, tile, painting, drywall, and other industries involved in home building and restoration,” Mr. Vanvari continues. “And we get to really help our clients from start to end; from the initial emergency call to the entire restoration of their home.”
